This scope was used by the German Army starting from 1941. The short 1.5x Zielfernrohr 41 (Zf41) telescopic sight was fitted to some Karabiner 98k rifles for sharpshooting use. The Zf-41 was in fact the first attempt to provide the ordinary infantryman with a rifle capable of being used, if not for pure sniping, then at least for sharpshooting. It was initially planned to equip most combat units with the Zf-41 scopes, but only 6% of German weapons production could fit the sight.

This example has good optics and works fine. The mount is marked “3261” with a line drawn through the number. Below this is the letter “K” with a Waffenamt mark and the number “214” below it. At very bottom are the letters “duv.” The two mount yokes are also stamped with a “61.” The body of the scope itself is marked “59819 cxn K.F.  Z. F. 41.” Both the scope and the mount retain about 90% of their original color.

With the scope is the original carrying case. The case is complete with the cleaning cloth stored under a small spring loaded door in the lid and the original cleaning brush. The exterior of the case has 99% or the original paint and the web strap for attaching to the waist belt. The lid also has the original latch with a worn but complete pull tab.
